‘SOLID GOLD’ - BRAND NEW SINGLE OUT NOW
WATCH THE VIDEO HERE
PINEWOOD SMILE - RELEASED OCTOBER 6th THROUGH COOKING VINYL
BRAND NEW ALBUM
The Darkness have released their expletive-drenched new single ‘Solid Gold’ via Cooking Vinyl, accompanied by a video of the self-proclaimed rock legends performing in a huge aircraft hanger amongst a mass of glam-rock lighting and Marshall speaker stacks.
Frontman Justin Hawkins announces, “We have written this song to reassure you all that having now released more music in the period after our well publicised hiatus than in the period before it, we have no intention whatsoever of stopping. Hence the lyric "We're never gonna stop... Shitting out solid gold". Barring any unforeseen circumstances, The Darkness will always be here to delight and beguile. You're welcome.”
An absolute monster of a rock song, ‘Solid Gold’ takes no prisoners whatsoever, taking direct aim at the music industry and addressing record companies, egos and the insincerity that comes with it. It will make uncomfortable listening for A&R men everywhere…
“There's a guy coming down from Sony / Artist and Repertoire
If he likes what he hears in those stupid ears / I can buy myself a faster car
Blowing smoke up our arses / Everything we do is ace
He wants to wine and dine us / He's desperate to sign us
Cos we melted his fucking face”
Well, you don’t get that from Ed Sheeran!
‘Solid Gold’ is the latest single to be taken from The Darkness’ forthcoming album Pinewood Smile, out October 6th through Cooking Vinyl.
It follows the release of the glorious, hard-rockin’, autobiographical lead single ‘All The Pretty Girls’. Both singles are available on all streaming platforms and also available for download with pre-orders of the album for the instant gratification of fans.

Pinewood Smile finds The Darkness on electrifying form, delivering some of the most sharp-witted, infectious, humorous and downright brilliant songs of their career. The album is also the first to feature the drumming and vocal talents of new band member Rufus Tiger Taylor, son of Queen legend Roger Taylor, who shares vocal duties with Justin on two of the tracks.
To celebrate the release of Pinewood Smile, The Darkness will be touring extensively at the end of this year playing 17 dates in the UK throughout November and December including a headline show at London’s Hammersmith Eventim Apollo on December 10th. The shows are part of a wider European tour, full dates can be found at http://www.thedarknesslive.com/tour-dates/
Copenhagen-based modern hardcore group Psy:Code have released the official video for "Stay Disappeared," a track from new album 'Mørke'. Check out the video at the following link: https://youtu.be/RUW2AHOHqMs
Mørke is out now on Pavement Entertainment. The album can be purchased through iTunes and Amazon.
Psy:Code recently released a 360 video for album track "Loosen the Tight," which can be viewed at https://youtu.be/Qt7kVaBY-Zw. The official video for "Leech" is also available at this location.
Psy:Code is a band driven by a desire to reach beyond its own boundaries. The band's first two releases, Delusion and Cause and Neglect, were met with critical acclaim by critics worldwide. The praise was not met with complacency and Psy:Code set the bar higher when writing their third album. Mørke is a natural progression, but remains grounded in the roots planted by its predecessors.
Over the years Psy:Code has supported several major acts, including Slayer, Mastodon, Amon Amarth, Trivium, Gorefest, Illdisposed and Artillery. The band has toured extensively in their native Denmark and throughout Europe.
Tour dates in support of the album will be announced soon.

One of the driving forces behind the resurgence of gothic rock and post-punk in Finland in the new millennium, Kuudes Silmä have kept a long break from recording. Previous works have appeared on the sadly defunct Combat Rock Industry label, and Svart Records welcomes the group into the fold with their second album, Pelko, set for international release on September 22nd.
Although expressing themselves in their native tongue, Kuudes Silmä's music is very much part of the greater global post-punk underground. Formed, suitably enough, in Berlin in 2009, the band have played several tours around Europe, America, and Russia, and appeared on Maximum Rock’n’Roll zine's Sound the Alarm compilation. On Pelko, the band takes a small step towards gothic maturity, with some of the most abrasive tones giving room for a more new wave pop approach.

Mallory Knox are back with a brand new single ‘Sugar’ to fuel your summer. Full to the brim with the band’s signature driving hooks and the epitome of a sing-along chorus, ‘Sugar’’s themes are in fact quite bleak. Bassist and songwriter Sam Douglas explains that it’s a song “about feeling completely isolated and alone in a world where it feels like everyone has someone to lean on except you. You’re driven to a point of desperation, which makes you feel that having someone for a very short period of time (i.e.. a one night stand) is better than having no one at all.”
The track heralds the band’s forthcoming performances at Reading & Leeds Festivals at the end of this month. Mallory Knox will solidify their status as a main stage force to be reckoned with, playing alongside a main stage line-up that includes Jimmy Eat World, Bastille and Kasabian at Reading on Friday 25th Aug and Leeds on Saturday 26th Aug.
Mallory Knox released their latest album ‘Wired’ mere months ago and it broke into the Top 20 of the UK Album Charts, as did its predecessor ‘Asymmetry’. ‘Wired’, is amongst the most hard-hitting, melodically euphoric, outspoken and open-hearted albums in modern rock and ‘Sugar’ sees the band soar yet further.
